Going Green

Décor trends are going au natural. If you can’t celebrate under the stars, bring the outside in. Add some oversize potted trees for an instant forest effect. Or incorporate natural elements like wood and stone into your table settings. Greenery (not just the colour) continues to trend—it’s easy to manipulate and can give your décor an undone but beautiful look.

Exceptional Place Cards

Place cards don't have to match your theme or wedding style. They're the perfect place to be playful and infuse your celebration with your personalities. Create a dramatic display or let your cards double as favours, like splits of champagne or toy boats.

Ceremony Remix

Classic aisles will always be popular, but couples are adding twists to the traditional ceremony. A circular ceremony gives guests a more intimate connection with your vows. Cocktails before your “I dos”? Why not! Couples are mixing up the timeline and kicking things off with a celebratory sip.

Games Galore

Get your guests mingling with a tasty signature sip and some fun. Games are the ultimate grown-up icebreaker. Opt for silly Mad Libs about your first date. Everyone will be buds before dinner - trust us.

Translucent Cakes

Not quite frosted, not quite bare, the almost-naked cake is a perfect blend of two styles, and ideal for a less formal celebration. These confections are usually iced in buttercream and topped with fresh flowers or seasonal fruits that hint at the flavours of the cake filling.

Grand Getaways

Think of this as a fresh take on the classic sparkler send-off. Surprise your guests with an unexpected getaway on the back of a motorcycle of classic VW Campervan. For a twist on the trend, have a really memorable entrance instead.

Exceptional Entertainment

Give your guests an evening they won’t soon forget with unparalleled entertainment. Think outside the box a choir belting out your favourite Beyoncé song. Or go the more traditional route with music, but pair it with performance, like a classical quartet and ballerinas.

The Bridgewater Hall offers a unique and exciting backdrop to your wedding. The Hall offers a range of stunning spaces to choose from for your civil ceremony, photographs, wedding breakfast and evening reception.
